Upcoming Fair at Silver Spring School | Schools
On Wednesday, June 1st Saint Francis International School will bring parents and students together for learning, fun, and service to others at their 1st Annual Mission Fair.
At 8:40 am the entire student body will gather together for the last time this school year to celebrate mass at St. Camillus Church. Students are invited to attend mass in clothing that represents their ethnic heritage.
Mission Fair is special because students will not only celebrate their own cultural heritage but will learn about other cultures not necessarily represented in their school. After celebrating mass, each class will take turns visiting the Mission Fair itself from 10 am to 1 pm. At the fair, parents will run tables selling food and souvenirs representing twelve different cultures from around the world. Students will also be able to play games and win prizes unique to the different cultures.
Due to the recent disaster in Japan all proceeds will go to the Franciscan Chapel Center in Tokyo, Japan to assist with their ongoing work with refugees and those affected by the earthquake.
